Probate Litigation


Plunkett Cooney’s probate attorneys have extensive experience representing individuals and corporate trustees, personal representatives, and other fiduciaries, as well as beneficiaries of family trusts and estates in litigation. 

Among the many areas of expertise within this aspect of litigation are will and trust contests, trust and will construction proceedings, guardianship proceedings, claims of breach of fiduciary duty, corporate fiduciary claims, and contested creditor claims against an estate.

The firm’s practice draws from the experience of our litigators in the Trusts & Estates Group, as well as the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group. Our litigators have tried major jury trials in state and federal courts in numerous jurisdictions in the United States. Where disputes can be more efficiently resolved through alternative dispute resolution, the firm’s attorneys are skilled at representing their clients in facilitative mediation or arbitration proceedings.
